What: The ICAR laboratories (Infrastructure commune en acoustique pour la recherche ÉTS-IRSST) are housed at ÉTS (École de technologie supérieure), just a couple blocks away from the ICSV26 venue. ICAR is a training and research laboratory for industrial acoustics. Its creation results from the successful collaboration between ÉTS university and IRSST occupational health research institute.
ICAR allows to test, improve and develop new products or processes that are more acoustically efficient: industrial machines, tools, transportation vehicles, household appliances, acoustic materials and hearing protection devices.
The ultimate goal of ICAR activities is to increase the comfort, health and safety of workers (and the general public) through the operation of state-of-the-art acoustic testing facilities that meet the needs of both industry and academic researchers.




Note: For logistic reasons, this exclusive tour will be limited to 3 groups of 15 persons each.
